Yes hojo,you joined the only church that follows one man called a Pope.The only church that has cluttered its buildings with statues that are quite advantageous to the economy of your only church.<quoted text>
I "canned the crap" when I left the Protestant bible only (half-truth, half-heresy Christianity and became a TRUE follower of Jesus Christ (in and through) HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church.
Yes hojo,the only church you belong to has forced an issue of celibacy on its clergy for centuries,and intends on doing so,which is not biblical,nor even remotely Jewish.
Your only church has placed the Mother of our Lord on a pedestal she would never place herself on,yet the apparitions all claim that Mary wants obesiance,and a form of worship or praise,of course is not for God.
Your only church has for centuries laid a heavy load of rules and canon laws on its people,so much so,that its people were more concerned about following those rules and laws,than learning about Grace,and what they have inherited in Christ.
Your only church has a system of canonizing men and women to be "Saints",when the Bible has called all believers the saints of God.
For years and years your only church discouraged individual study of the Bible.Treating individuals as incapable of receiving the truth from prayer and study of God's Word.Only priests could give the right interpretation of the Word.Many of your people found out that the only church deprived them of a spiritual treasure God intends for every believer to have.
Many of your only church people fell prey to the cults because they did not know the Word of God,the Bibles were placed in respectful places in their homes,but many were never opened and read.The Cults claim many Catholic converts and that is not a lie,especially amongst the Jehovah Witnesses.
Your only church has just in the last 30 years tried to change the atmosphere of their mass from a cold forum as it were to more personal expression,and that is because many Catholics complained that if and when they visited the prots,they found the atmosphere in those churches as engaging and warm.Even music has been borrowed from prots,as the Catholics had only their latin monotone music in the Mass, and music of litanies to Mary.
Your only church here in America has had to cool its jets on the worship of Mary,because the Prot majority thought, that is all Catholics did was to worship Mary.
Your only church has the darkest history of any Christian church.More Jews have been killed and expelled from Catholic countries than from any other including the Muslim countries.
hojo,enjoy your only church it is by your choice that you go to it,and although you have the right to go there,you insult in every post non-Catholic Christians by calling us heretics,sola crapola and so on.
